View Full Version : Image size increase after upload.
September 8th, 2005, 11:14 AM
What would be causing an image at 172kb to increase to 370kb after upload?
The image was 700x700 and my max setting is 640x640 so it should have decreased in size or am I overlooking something?

No... the original image will not change in pixelsize...
it will only change in quality if you set the original image quality in your settings..
if you upload a jpg that is compressed to 75% and you set the original image quality to 100% then it will increase in size.. (but the quality you see wont get better) ... set the quality to 75 or 80 % and it should decrease in filesize..(not in pixels)
if you are concerned by server capacity.. or webspace then set Save Original Files not to keep the original.. it will then be resized to 640x640... and you will not keep the original...
if you choose keep the original the size: 640x640 will only be applied to your "normal" or intermediate image.. the original image will remain in the original size but as said above you can modify the quality (btw setting the quality to -1 will keep exactly the same filesize)
hope that was understandable..

I had it set to not keep the originals and at 100%, but had thought 100% would mean that it stayed the same as what was uploaded. I had no idea it increased quality. I thought it would only decrease with settings.
Thanks for opening my eyes about the -1 setting. Note to self: read Brian's instructions. :o
